Need a laser printer compatible with Windows 7

Q: Need a laser printer compatible with Windows 7

I have a HP Pavillions P6000 Series with a Windows 7 operating system. It would not "talk" to my 5-yr old HP 3700dn printer. Bought a new HP Color LaserJet CP2025 less than a year ago. Have spent countless hours with Tech Support downloading, uninstalling, and reinstalling various drivers. Worked for a couple of days then would not print. Any color print job over 500 kb would not print. Now it will not print at all. Need to print frequently using 65 cardstock and always in color with graphics.

I have searched review boards for a color laser printer compatible with Windows 7 and prints quality pages ($500 price limit). This is what I have found: Konica Minota: problems with compatability, Brother: toner hog and bad customer service, Samsung: fuser issues and terrible customer service, OKI: fuser problems and expensive ink, Lexmark: toner hog and other hardware issues, Ricoh: could not find any reviews but do they really still sell these?

Grateful for any suggestions of a brand and model # that would actually be a good fit for my needs.

Thanks in advance!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

So I have an interesting situation here. A client of mine uses an old dos based database program that can't print to any printer that uses a USB connection, but it works fine with parallel. I've just upgraded them to Windows 7, and some of their printers (which I didn't know at the time, I wish I did), don't have compatible Win7 drivers. Does anybody here know of a new model printer that still can use a parallel port and works with windows 7? I know HP Laserjet 1300 works, because they have several of those, but I'm hoping I can find actual new machines (it's a longshot, I know).

Laptop: HP 15 n028US. Just purchased and all Windows updates installed.

I installed the recommended full driver from the HP website and it doesn't work. The printer does appear on the list of printers, but it doesn't work. I followed the recommendation to only plug in the USB cable when prompted and it appeared that the installation was successful. I tried a recommendation found in another forum to install the Windows 7 driver. That didn't work either.

Anyone know of a driver that will work?

I have a HP 1020 Laser Jet Printer connected to my computer and have had for some months a working well. Suddenly it created a problem with the spooler and each time I tried to print with it, it disconnected the spooler. After some research I found that the problem was rectified by updating the Printer Driver from the HP site.
However despite the fact that the computer recognizes the printer and the spooler remains active, I cannot print any documents with this printer. If PDF files are attempted it comes up with a messages saying Adobe reader is not working.
There are three other printers, all Ink Jets connected to this computer and are working fine. Has anyone else experienced similar difficulties.

I'm just a new 'Kid' on the block,and some clues would be appreciated.

Printer is circa 2005, so I am not too surprised, no driver means potential SALES!

I spent $99 on a Brother Laser Printer last year (HL-2270DW) when I found it on sale down from $149, it's so good, I went back and got a spare, and still on #1, by no means a heavy use printer, but it's 17PPM and perfect for my meager needs.

Some time ago I started a thread in which several people tied to help me get my printer up and running.
It's a legacy dinosaur bullet proof rock solid HP laser 5 printer that I paid a lot for and didn't want to scrap.

When I switched to Win 7 it stopped working.
I got a parallel card from Star tech. Tried that, no joy. Got another parallel card and still no joy.

I tried all sorts of stupid work-arounds Some might even have been smart - who knows but they didn't help. I even reinstalled my OS thinking that maybe the drivers never took in the first place. I was killing myself.

Finally I gave up and tried a VisionTek? Connect™ USB 3.0 PCI Express expansion card and a cable to go from the printer to the card.
Prolly any card would do, I chose this one because the price was OK. There was no other reason.

Ya gotta have a 4P power hook up available - the card needs power.

I installed the drivers for the card per the instructions from the CD provided ( Doh~!)
Then Booted the Pc.

Hooked the cable up to the printer and PC

Then on reboot the computer found the expansion card and THEN all by itself ( Sua Sponte so to speak) it found the printer installed the drivers and I was printing right away.

Why didn't I think of this before?
I guess because the parallel card seemed to be the correct solution but it wasn't. Something about the OS and maybe in conjunction with the Asus Mainboard there was just no getting the parallel card to work.

Hi,

My computer is working fine - but I recently purchased a new Samsung ML2570 laser printer that just died when the starter cartridge ran out of toner (or actually when the printer counter hit its predetermined set no. - probably 1000). At least I think that's what happened. The starter cartridges come without fuses. Replacement cartridges or toner refill kits come with fuses that are supposed to reset the counters, so when I refilled the starter cartridge and inserted the fuse that came with the kit, the printer still didn't work. I tried again with two more fuses, with no luck. I don't have a printer jam and all the doors are well-latched before I turn it on. Does anyone have any idea what I should do next to get my printer working again? My email is [email protected]

Regards, and thanks for any help,

I have had a Canon Pixma MP500 all in one for several years, and it is a great printer. BUT, I am really, really tired of paying for the ink. Even though I buy my ink for much less over the internet, an ink jet printer is cheap to buy, but expensive to use.

Are their any reasonably priced all in one color laser printers on the horizon that would be of good quality? For this type machine, I'm thinking under $500 would be reasonably priced, and I would seriously consider it.

Hi all,

I recently upgraded to Windows 7 (32 bit), but now my Lexmark All-In-One X74-X75 printer drivers aren't compatible... well, kind of.

When I first reinstalled the drivers after the upgrade, I was able to use the scan facility of the printer, and print jobs could queue up for printing, but they would not print. When I attempted to update drivers, uninstall/reinstall, etc, I was told the installation was unsuccessful.

I could not find any drivers for my model printer on the Lexmark site, but I was hoping someone out there may have some tips on how I can get around this problem.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi Everyone!

I run Windows 98 on a desktop and own a HP Laser Jet 6L Printer. It works fine except when about 10 pages or less are left in the paper input bin, it feeds them all the way through. (This has been happening for 6 months to a year) To try to avoid paper jams,when the bin gets low, I feed the pages through one at a time and it seems to work fine. It also works fine if the bin is fairly full. A relative of mine had this same problem after printing several 100 pages of documents with an HP Laser Jet 5L. The printer has had a lot of use and is over 3 years old. (4 years in July) some questions:

1. Can I manually feed the pages through when the bin is low and that's gonna be ok?

2. What's the most likely senerio for what is causing this problem?

3. My relative spent about $75 to get his printer problem fixed This was about 4 years ago, so how much would you think I would have to pay to get it fixed.

Considering the computer/printer is almost 4 years old, it's more of a minor annoyance than anything else. What do you guys think about this? Thank you for your help
 

A:HP Laser Jet 6L Printer Situation

Just my opinions, but

IF you found someone who'd work on it, the cost average probably wouldn't make sense......however, if you could find an older type apprentice person, the person would appreciate quality....they just don't make the new ones like they used to.

Feeding the sheets are no big deal...it's not going to harm anything.....

I would guess that after 4 years, the feeder teeth just aren't grabbing once the paper tray gets low........

If so, is there anything special we have to do to make it work? If not, I guess it is back to the store.

A:Laser Printer on Network

yes you can connect through the PC that is directly connected to the printer, if that PC is on your network, the only downside is that the PC will need to be switched on for anyone to use the printer

so on the PC with the printer connected, you need to share the printer and give it a name
then from the other PC - you set up a network printer

add a printer
then browse the network - it should see the shared printer

this should help

Hi all,

I am after either an A3 or A4 laser printer that can print on heavier papers and the thickest card stock. I will mainly be using it for foiling, hence the reason for it needing to be a laser printer. Obviously it will make more sense if it has a straight path to avoid jamming and curling. I will mainly be using black toner only rather than colour, so maybe a printer that has larger mono cartridges available would be beneficial. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks - M

I have used a HP LaserJet 1100 very successfully for 4 years now, without it ever giving a problem. The latest model I think is the Laserjet 1200. It does about 4000 pages per toner-refill.

Also Brother HL-1440 is a very good one (try Amazon.co.uk)

Rather than spending the money on a network-capable printer, buy a separate dedicated print-server like Netgear PS110 which can connect 2 printers to your network via the hub/switch.
I use that for my network at home with the above LaserJet and a colour Deskjet. Very easy to install.

Admittedly I've had it years and it's done a lot of printing, but now it's getting a bit long in the tooth. Every time I print I have to clean the heads. The kids complain all the time because the quality it not consistent. I have used genuine cost a fortune Epson cartidges and also compatibles, but I think it's past its best.

My Mums old B&W Brother goes on and on, never needs cleaning, looking at and never paper jams.

So, I was thinking of investing in a colour laser printer and thought you lot out there might be able to recommend a good bit of kit.

I'm not too worried about speed.
Something with separate colour cartridges would save cash, not just 1 black 1 colour.
A good quality print, maybe even up to photo standard.
Not too pricey on cartridges and maybe something I can get compatible cartridges for.

I'm sure there are some of you out there with some advice.

Can I use it in that WinXP emulation for Win7? WinXP has the driver preinstalled. I also cannot find the driver for WinXP online, so another question would be will the driver be there for it if I run it in WinXP emulation?

If not, Is there any possible way I can use that printer in Windows 7? Last resort would be to throw a WinXP installation on one of my drives.

A:cpu and laser printer disposal

Depending on how remote you are there should be an outlet that will take these items. There are new directives coming into force in the UK (WEEE Directive) that puts a restriction on the disposal of unwanted (primarily commercial) electrical goods. As a result small companies are cropping up who specialise in unwanted electrical goods, particularly computers.

Some charities have learned how to cannabalise computer parts and turn them into servicable systems, there may be one near you. Alternatively, contact your local authority who should give you advice of where to dispose of your parts in an environmentally friendly manner.

Good luck !

My HP Laserjet III died today and the shop said that a circuit board failed. Repair would cost $150-$200 and they said not to do it. Not worth it when newer printers are cheap.

They have several used and rebuilt printers (bankrupt stock and end of lease machines) available and I trust them. Have bought toner from them for 10-15 years.

They want about $350 for a used 2100 or 2200 series HP laser printer (50,000 copies on one of them) and have others available as well. Newegg has some that look comparable for about the same price new (I want to paper trays).

It has been so many years since I bought a printer that it is hard to know what to get. I use it at home and probably print 20-30 pages a week.

I like HP because they seem to last forever. Bought my laserjet III in 1992 and have not had any problems until now.

Any advice?

Thanks

HP's are fine. Brothers are also good, but their drums need to be replaced. I guess you just need to get one that has two trays..? I'm not sure what else to say, except don't buy a used one if you can get a new one for the same price. At 20-30 pages a week, it would be hard to find a bad laser printer

Our office laser printer is stamping and smudging print down the page repeatedly from what appears from one of the center guide wheels. I've cleaned the printer wheels a couple times and the problem persists. Has anyone had this issue and solved it?

Hi everyone

I got an HP brother laser printer HL 1440 from a liquidation sale and I am trying to set it up but I have no drivers. I have tried to search the internet and the HP site to find one, with no luck. I really don't know a whole lot about this. If anyone knows where I could find the driver I would greatly appreciate it.

I am using windows xp home edition, I have heard that xp comes with it's own drivers and stuff, but again I don't know much about installing.

Thanks again.

Hi, and welcome to the TSG forums.

You really confused me when you described your printer as an "HP brother laser printer HL 1440", since I don't think it can be made by both Hewlett-Packard AND Brother at the same time, but I THINK I've got it figured out.

Unless I'm mistaken, you want a WinXP Home driver for a BROTHER HL-1440 printer. If I'm RIGHT, then download the XP driver from this page:

http://solutions.brother.com/hl1400/download/dl-win2000-pcl.html

Do NOT let the "win2000" in the page name concern you; the driver is the same for both Windows 2000 and Windows XP. According to these notes on that page:

NOTES for Windows XP user:

1.This is a Windows XP driver that has the same capability as drivers available for other previous Windows operating systems.

2.If your PC has an active Internet connection, the driver will be downloaded
and installed automatically when you connect the device to your computer.
Your internet connection must remain active during the driver installation.
If you do not wish to install the driver using an active Internet
connection, simply download the file from this page and following the installation instructions.

Judging by that, all you should have to do to the printer is hook it up to your system, turn it on, then boot up, and connect to the Internet. Of course, that might NOT work, but it would be one way to install the printer.

Or, you can download the driver and then install the printer AND th... Read more

I am having an issue when printing. Every page has 8 uniform dots on the right hand side of the paper. I have tried cleaning the cartridge and removing any dust from the machine.
If anyone has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.

If the "dots" are of exact spacing then it will be caused by a fault in the drum or the transfer system, a dot being made on each rotation.

There is usually nothing you can do about it if it is the drum, apart from replacing it. That model does have an "all in one" drum and color toner assembly I believe, but I am unsure if the drum will have the problem or the transfer belt in your case.
